The Conrad is also conducive to working outside the guest room. 368C0645Punctuated by the hotel’s extensive art collection are meeting spaces and banquet rooms ranging from individual workspaces to a 6,200 square foot ballroom. The facilities are impressive, not only due to amenities such as the A/V infrastructure, but also by a large staircase that serves as the focal point of the pre-function space, as well as the size of the flat-panel display in the boardroom, which is frequently used by the neighbors at Goldman Sachs.

DINING

While Battery Park City isn’t quite the foodie Mecca that marks the rest of New York City, the Conrad isn’t exactly on a desert island. Inside the hotel, Atrio Wine Bar and Restaurant has food available all day, and provides room service. 368C0396The Mediterranean-based menu offers something for every taste, including a Merguez-sausage and goat cheese pizza that I ordered and which was a welcome end to a long, snowy day in northern New Jersey.

Without venturing outdoors, authentic French patisserie, sushi, burgers and shakes, and bagels are all within reach. Guests aren’t likely to starve at the Conrad. The rooftop bar, which is open in the warmer months, provides an up-close-and-personal view of the downtown skyline, and looks out across the Hudson River at Jersey City’s skyline.

BOTTOM LINE

The Conrad New York is the Manhattan hotel to stay in for people who don’t want to feel like they are in Manhattan.  It escapes the claustrophobia of the city while being minutes away from the action.  Many hotels are modern and well designed, but the Conrad takes the concept to the next level, from the exterior to the guest rooms, which represent such a good use of space that I would want to live in one.   Unfortunately, the rooms and suites are not for sale, and I even checked at the boutique and at the Conrad online store.  Regardless of this minor setback, the Conrad’s model of comfortable elegance puts it at the top of my list for Manhattan Hotels.
